rfcomm bind fails --> Want to connct to mobile phone with bl

Hi all,

I try to connect my computer to the internet using my mobile phone (Nokia E65) with bluetooth.

I try that:

rfcomm bind 00:17:E4:91:47:C7 2

wvdial GPRS

→ WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.60
→ Cannot open /dev/rfcomm0: Host is down
→ Cannot open /dev/rfcomm0: Host is down
→ Cannot open /dev/rfcomm0: Host is down

Bluetooth on mobile is activated, address and channel are correct.

When I want to check the rfcomm bindings it show the following result:

rfcomm show all

rfcomm0: 02:00:00:00:00:00 channel 1 closed

The result is strange, isn’t it?
Is there anybody who can help me?


I was having the same problem, what I did is that I made everything again, but however, this should work (or at less help you)
